In Ireland, agents sell real estate online

Virtual views, live chats with brokers and electronic signature of documents are the new reality of the Irish real estate market, writes The Irish Times.

Savills Ireland has launched a new website that allows you to view and buy property in Ireland online. The site presents new buildings in the Greater Dublin area.

Potential buyers can view properties using Matterport 3D virtual reality technology. In this case, buyers can ask agents questions as if they were present at the viewing in person. Contracts for the purchase of real estate are signed electronically.

David brown, Director of new developments at Savills Ireland, said that nothing compares to viewing real estate live, but given the restrictions due to coronavirus, virtual viewing of properties is the next best option.

“Over the past 14 days, our team has focused on creating a quality platform that is more than just a marketing gimmick. Through this platform, potential home buyers will be able to get all the information they need to make an informed decision, ” brown said.

“We don’t know how long this crisis will last or how long the restrictions on movement will last, but what we do know — and what we have long been sure of — is that there is demand,” he added.
